Every Christmas my grandma used to make a candy called "Church Windows," which is basically melted chocolate and butter mixed with mini multicolored marshmallows and coconut. I'm dying to make them this year in memory of my grandma, and can't seem to find them in NY! Has anyone seen them around the city or the outer boroughs? Even Long Island?
I know what you're thinking... just use regular marshmallows. But the colored ones are key, because when you slice the logs of chocolate and marshmallows, they look like stained glass windows. Hence the name - church windows. They're not really church windows if the marshmallows are all white!
Has anyone spotted them at your grocery store? I can't even find any to buy online.
So I'm going pumpkin picking Sunday... yay!! And I want to make something new with it. What are your favorite recipes with Pumpkin? Savory, sweet, whatever... lay 'em on me. It's just that time of year.
I'm in serious need of some new kitchen goodies, but don't want to spend an exorbitant amount. Can anyone in NYC recommend a great (read: reasonably priced) restaurant supply store? I want to pick up a few sheet pans, random storage containers, squeeze bottles, etc. I know there are a bunch in the Bowery/Chinatown area, but I was wondering if anyone has a specific store they frequent. Thanks!
I'm quite proud of myself for finally coming up with the PERFECT Christmas gift for my Dad (who is notoriously hard to shop for) - a home beer brewing kit. He's been talking about making his own brew for months now, but doesn't quite know where to begin so I figured a kit would be the easiest way to start.
Here's where I need your help... I've done a bit of research and found several available kits online, but this close to Christmas I'm wary about ordering something that could get lost in transit and not make it here on time. Add to that the fact that I'm hardly ever home to sign for a package and usually have to go to the ends of the Earth to track one down when they refuse to drop it off... and you're left with a girl who would really prefer to shop via the brick and mortar method. That said, does anyone know where I might procure such a kit in the NYC area? I live in Queens, but work in Manhattan and have a car, so I'm willing to travel just about anywhere in the 5 boroughs.
Has anyone seen these kits around town? A few websites mentioned that places like drug stores, Target, etc. sell them, but I don't believe I've ever seen one before.
Thanks in advance for the help! I love how everyone in this community seems friendly and full of useful advice. Happy Holiday eating!
